What is Las voces diversas de la diáspora?
Las voces diversas de la diáspora is a unique publication that features content amplifying the voices of Black/Afro-Latine people. We understand that teachers are busy, and need support cultivating and maintaining an equitable curriculum. We hope this will make it easier for teachers to diversify their curriculum, create a sense of balance, and bring in as many voices as possible.
We struggled for years to compile resources that included People of Color and at the same time were uplifting and comprehensible, so we decided to do something about it!
Therefore, our goal is to make sure teachers have access to quality, compelling, relevant, and dynamic content all year round; resources that can be integrated into any unit (or used as part of your preferred reading program). Most of the articles are accompanied by activities because we know that teachers are busy people.
We hope that you will join us in amplifying these voices in your class! We are so excited to be nurturing our twin passions while adding value to our world language community. #representationmatters
